Sunday Creek Horizons

Partnering with Appalachia to come together, rise up, and secure resources for the future in one voice.

We are a strategic communications and issue advocacy, real estate development, and business development consulting firm operating in Southeast Ohio.

Our firm’s name is both a testament to Appalachia’s storied past and a reminder of the relentless need for responsible development and socio-economic justice in the region.

Sleepy and picturesque, the Sunday Creek winds through the hills of Perry and Athens counties in southeastern Ohio before emptying into the Hocking River, a major tributary of the Ohio. Generations ago, a cluster of coal mines lined the creek. In 1930, one such mine became the site of Ohio’s worst ever mine disaster, when an explosion killed 82 men. The disaster prompted outrage and bolstered improvement of Ohio’s mine safety laws.

It is with this image in mind that we pioneer our new approach to community and economic development efforts in Appalachia. Through region-based, cohesive advocacy, we see an opportunity for a bold new way of life emerging in these hills. In the past three years, our work has brought millions of dollars to our clients from state, federal and private sources.


We are always eager to partner on projects that will tangibly improve the lives of the eastern and southern Ohioans.
